Document Description
The project site is located in public right-of-way within an existing median on the west side of Woodman Ave. from Lanark Street to Saticoy Street and at various public street right-of-way locations within the surrounding 130-acre watershed in a portion of the Panorama City community in the City of LA. Under the proposed pilot project, approximately 9.5 million gallons of storm water per year would be captured from approximately 130 tributary acres, directed through pretreatment devices (trash racks and primary separators to remover litter, oil, grease and sediments), and Infiltrated to the San Fernando Groundwater Basin. A vegetated infiltration swale would be constructed to meander down the length of an existing median on the west side of a stretch of Woodman Ave. and an underground detention system would be installed. The modified median would be planted with native trees such as sycamores and alders, along with native drought tolerant vegetation. A pedestrian path with several benches and educational signs would be installed to provide connectivity and open green space for the neighboring community. The project would also include surface water diversions in the adjacent neighborhood to convey runoff to the new median infiltration system.
